I love topping a delicious bowl of greens with flavorful grilled chicken. And obviously, I’m not the only one! These Bruschetta Grilled Chicken Zoodle Bowls are the most popular gluten free recipe on the blog.

When it comes to my favorite topping for any salad, bowl or basically any meal, it has to be avocados! Creamy, flavorful California Avocados are a staple in my pantry and a huge part of my diet. I love that you can add them to everything from smoothies to enchiladas.

This Lean & Green Superfood Smoothie is my go-to in the mornings! And I could eat these Creamy Avocado Corn Enchiladas every week!

For this salad, I added a whole sliced California avocado with quartered cherry tomatoes and grilled pesto chicken. I used homemade Basil Pesto for the pesto chicken, but store-bought works also!

This salad is bursting with flavor! It can be served with the chicken hot or cold, as an entree or side dish. You can easily toss the salad together while meal prepping and divide it up for lunches throughout the week.

No boring salads here! This salad will become your new favorite. And the great thing is, it’s quick and easy to make in just 29 minutes!

Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers – Whole 30 Recipes

You definitely want to add these Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers to your list of Whole 30 Recipes! They’re healthy, gluten free, dairy free and delicious!

Ground chicken, spices, veggies and buffalo sauce are baked in bell peppers for a healthy recipe that's gluten free, dairy free and Whole30 compliant!

It’s the 1st of March and also the first day of “Whole 30 March” on the blog!

I decided to share a month of Whole 30 recipes for a few reasons. I wanted to create new healthy recipes both for the blog and for my weekly menu. There have been several friends and followers that have requested Whole 30 recipes on the blog. And I realized that you could have buffalo sauce (certain brands, of course!) while eating Whole30 and then I was in!

I’ve never been a “diet” person but I do believe in balancing healthy eating along with indulgent eats for a well rounded diet that let’s you enjoy the foods you love, along with making sure you eat your peas and carrots! 😉

The Whole 30 recipes I’ll be sharing this month are not just for those on the Whole30 diet. These recipes, like Balsamic Salmon Zoodle Bowls, Turkey Taco Salad and Chipotle Chili Sweet Potatoes, are perfect for those with gluten or dairy allergies or sensitivities as they’re all gluten free and dairy free. They’re also for those of us (like me!) looking for recipes that are healthy but also incredibly flavorful and delicious.

I spent a lot of time developing recipes that fit within Whole30 compliance, but also seriously taste great, so you’ll never feel like you’re missing out on a really great homemade meal when you make these recipes!

Raise your hand if you’re a huge fan of shishito peppers, now, raise your hand if you have no idea what the heck a shishito pepper is!

Shishitos are Asian peppers that are generally sweet with a spicy one every once in a while. They’re usually sautéed and served as an appetizer at Japanese restaurants. I introduced a recipe for Soy Ginger Shishito Peppers on the blog in 2013 and they’ve been a huge hit ever since!

Lately, I’ve been seeing shishito peppers popping up in major grocery stores, whereas I used to only be able to find them at Asian markets.

With the popularity and the convenience of picking up these delicious peppers at my local grocery store, I decided it was time to introduce another shishito recipe on the blog and it just so happens that shishito peppers pair perfectly with shrimp stir fry!
